    Firstly, I know that this has been a thread previously but I'm a bit stuck so any help would be appreciated. I have only had a discovery for 2 months and am not very good at fixing stuff etc so this is for suggestions about where to take the car next.

    My m+s lights have been flashing intermittently and it feels like it is in limp mode (seems to be in 3rd gear, hard to pull away etc.

    I took to local mechanic and he ran diagnostic and changed the battery. Still have the same issue, but his diagnostic wont read with the transmission. I took it somewhere else and they said they couldn't find the issue but they wouldn't really touch it as it is automatic.

    My question is where do I take it now and what do I ask them to do? I'm concerned if I take it to an automatic specialist they will just want to replace transmission/gearbox for HUGE price which I cant rally afford. I have it booked into garage for Monday next week for them to check gearbox oil levels and filter to see if that makes a difference.
    The 2 places so far haven't mentioned anything about the xyz switch which maybe could be an issue?

    Any advice please guys?

    Thanks

    Agreed! Being totally ignorant about the workings of cars I just take mine to the LR dealer and pay through the nose to have a guaranteed job done. I am still within the 12 months warranty!
